AMD's next-gen EPYC 9000 "Genoa" CPU family will be powered by the next-gen Zen 4 core architecture, with details arriving on the flagship EPYC 9664 CPU.
The next-gen AMD EPYC 9664 processor will have up to 96 cores and 192 threads of CPU power, 12-channel DDR5-5200 memory support, 128 PCIe 5.0 lanes per CPU, and up to 700W of TDP with its new LGA 6096 "SP5" socket. AMD will be using 12 CCDs in its 96-core, 192-thread beast CPU with each of the CCDs featuring 8 CPU cores based on the Zen 4 architecture.
As for the cache, the AMD EPYC 9664 "Genoa" CPU will have 32MB of L3 cache per CCD, which is also shared across all of its Zen 4 cores within the CCD. AMD has 384MB of L3 cache + 96MB of L2 cache which when combined, add up to a monster 480MB of pooled cache on the EPYC 9664 chip.
Intel's new 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" CPUs have been getting more and more details over the last couple of months, but now the next-gen mid-range Core i5-13600K has appeared.
The new Intel Core i5-13600K "ES3" processor is a 14-core, 20-thread CPU that has been benched in "Engineering Sample 3" form, which has been simulated to run at the same CPU clock speeds as the "QS" (Qualification Sample).
The Core i5-13600K processor has 5.1GHz + 4.9GHz CPU clocks on the P-cores, while the E-cores have their clock speeds at up to 4.0GHz. Power consumption is reportedly sitting at around 173W with 1.31V, with "ECSM_Official" adding that "there is still a lot of room for optimization". The official Core i5-13600K processor might be "optimized at about 160W".
Intel has just announced its new Intel Innovation event for September 27-28, 2022 where we'll se the company hosting tech sessions, demos, workshops, and I'm sure... some new product announcements.
The new 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" CPUs are expected to be unveiled and possibly launched at the event, but Intel will be highlighting AI (artificial intelligence), client, cloud, accelerated computing, IoT, 5G networks, security, and so much more.
Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger will be there in person, as well as Intel CTO Greg Lavender: each with their own keynotes at the Intel Innovation event. Intel will be livestreaming the keynote, so if you want to check out Intel Innovation when it kicks off... at least you won't need to be there. The last time Intel did this was their Intel Innovation event in October 2021, where we were introduced to the Intel 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPUs.
Intel's new 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" CPUs seem to be out like candy in some parts of the world, although we're still many months away from their release... we have a full review on the Intel Core i9-13900K processor.
The new Intel Core i9-13900K processor is the new flagship Raptor Lake CPU from the company, a new 24-core, 32-thread that in its pre-production sample state, has 125W and 250W (MTB) power limits and is ready for the world of overclocking.
The review is coming from Chinese reviewer Extreme Player, with the new Intel Core i9-13900K "Raptor Lake" CPU installed into an ASUS ROG Z690 Extreme motherboard and DDR5 memory at DDR5-6400. The CPU was cooled by a Thermalright AIO Frozen Magic 360 cooler, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, and a 1500W PSU.
AMD's next-gen EPYC "Genoa" CPUs are coming soon, with the monster new Zen 4-based EPYC "Genoa" CPU spotted in the flesh with its new SP5 package, and huge LGA-6096 socket.
The new pictures of AMD's upcoming EPYC "Genoa" CPU are from "YuuKi_AnS" and were posted on Reddit, showing the 96-core, 192-thread CPU in all its glory. Not only that, but the new SP5 package and huge LGA-6096 socket are delicious to see as a tech nerd, but man... that heat sink.
AMD's new SP5 heat sink is absolutely mammoth, bloody huge... with 8 torx screws holding down the beast. The new 96-core EPYC "Genoa" CPU has a 360W TDP, so AMD is providing the cooling chops to keep its Zen 4-based processor as cool as possible. The new EPYC "Genoa" CPU has a 50% increase in CPU cores, and 28% boost in TDP compared to the Zen 3-based EPYC "Milan" CPU.
AMD has kinda released its new Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000 WX series CPUs to the DIY market, with companies like Falcon Northwest cramming in the super HEDT processor into their new gaming and workstation PCs.
But now an unreleased AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X processor has been secured, tested, benchmarked, and overclocked by SkatterBencher. The new engineering sample of the Ryzen Threadripper 5990X processor has 64 cores and 128 threads of CPU power was also put under an EK-Quantum custom loop water cooler, and installed into an ASUS ROG ZENITH II Extreme Alpha motherboard, joined by 32GB of DDR4-2144 (yeah, not DDR5 memory).
SkatterBencher put the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X processor through its paces including PBO, Curve Optimizers, and of course: manual overclocking. The manual overclocking by SkatterBencher achieved the best results in performance, with each of the CCDs on the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5990X processor tested (there are 8 in total). CCD4 had the best tuning results, hitting 4.82GHz at 1.45V.
Intel's new 14th Gen Core "Meteor Lake" family of CPUs will debut next year, and while we're been hearing a bunch of rumors and details on the next-gen CPUs, now we're hearing about the 14th Gen Core "Meteor Lake" mobile CPUs.
The upcoming Intel 14th Gen Core "Meteor Lake" CPUs will be the first chiplet-style CPU from Intel, and made one the new Intel 4 process (rebranded Intel 7nm process node). Intel will have a CPU + GPU on the Compute Tile, an I/O Tile, and an SoC Tile. The mobile versions of Meteor Lake will have 3 product series: H, P, and U, all in their own power segments.
In new details from Igor's Lab has now appeared in the form of a platform overview diagram for Intel's new 14th Gen Core "Meteor Late" CPUs in mobile form. We can see here that Intel will have P-cores, E-cores, and new LP E-cores (LP could mean Low Power Efficient Cores) on the mobile Meteor Lake processors. Intel will have Xe LPG graphics, which will use Intel Adaptix Power share, with "extended gaming mode" for future Meteor Lake-powered gaming laptops.
Intel's next-gen "Intel 4" process is on track heading into volume production in 2H 2022, according to the very latest information from DigiTimes.
The site reports that "Intel 4, formally known as Intel's 7nm process, is on track to get ready for volume production in the second half of 2022, according to the chip vendor". Intel has been lagging behind in its process node for years now, but have slowly been playing catch up... the Intel 4 process node is a re-branded Intel 7nm node, just so you know.
But, the new Intel 4 process node is the star of the show when it comes to the next-gen 14th Gen Core "Meteor Lake" CPU series, which will be launching in 2023. Intel will also be using its upcoming Intel 4 process node for its enterprise-level Granite Rapids CPUs, too.
Intel's new 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" CPUs are a few months away yet, but we've got previews and reviews out already, and now some more details are coming out from a presentation held in Shenzen, China, by Intel this week.
The meeting itself saw Intel focusing on NAS products and other roadmaps, but there was a slide that Intel had up titled "Raptor Late-S Platform Overview" with some new details. The slide teases that Intel's next-gen Raptor Lake-S will support DDR5-5600 memory officially, a big jump over the current 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPUs with support for DDR5-4800 (the JEDEC default for DDR5).
Not only that, but the slide also means that Intel's upcoming Raptor Lake CPUs will have support for DDR4 memory, with up to DDR4-3200 supported. Intel's current-gen 600-series chipset and its associated motherboards have SKUs with DDR4 or DDR5 memory, so it looks like we can expect the same for the upcoming 700-series chipsets: motherboards with either DDR4 or DDR5 memory.
AMD launched its new Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor with its 3D V-Cache technology not too long ago now, to great success, and now rumor has it we can expect a few more ZEN3D products in the near future.
In the latest leak "Greymon55" says that there will be "several new products" with AMD 3D V-Cache technology and that there "will be further information next month". AMD's first outing with 3D V-Cache technology was the Ryzen 7 5800X3D which taps out at 8 cores and 16 threads, so we could get 3D V-Cache in higher-end 12-core and 16-core Ryzen CPUs, which is expected at this point.
But what about the lower-end side of things? AMD's new 3D V-Cache technology could debut in chips with less than 8 cores, which would be good for some mid-range 6-core, 12-thread Ryzen CPUs that would pack 3D V-Cache tech. Not all games need 8 cores and 16 threads, so a cheaper CPU with 3D V-Cache would be nice to see.
